That feel when I love Motorola now (or at least what Motorola used to be years ago).
Fifteen years ago I bought the pic; at first, even though I didn't intend to use it for anything but calling and messaging, I felt pretty disappointed: it had issues with my provider draining my money through GPRS, it had troubles with reconnecting after I'd turn it off or take a ride by metro (all those issues were dealt with later), it couldn't serve as an mp3 player, its cam sucked (the whole process of moving photos from the phone to PC was really FUCKED UP), but then I kind of got used to it.
So the thing survived falling into water and uncountable collisions with all kinds of hard surfaces, and was serving me well for 15 years up until last week when I broke my charger (not the original one, the original got broken some eight years ago).
At first I didn't think it was a big deal until I ventured fourth to find a new charger. Turned out, it's not that simple. Additionally, I wasn't sure it was the charger that broke, not the phone itself.
So, not hoping for much, I tried to charge it via USB-PC. As expected, I failed. Then I googled whether L6 is capable of charging via USB at all. Turns out, it can, but, first, I need special drivers, second, the phone has to be charged at least for the slightest bit (thanks God, it was). Drivers were a misty matter though. L6 got out of production in 2005, I think. So why would anyone update drivers to it (fuck you Asus, fuck you Microsoft, fuck you Gigabyte)? And yet Motorola provided me with working Windows freaking 7 drivers for the phone! They worked smoothly and my 15 year old phone is charging right now just perfectly.
